That's only because guys who are in their arb or pre-arb years don't count towards the guaranteed total for next season; none of them have guarantee deals for the 2014 season even if they are still under team control. This includes guys like De Aza, Beckham, and Viciedo who will probably earn between $8-$10 million combined.

B-R's payroll tracker currently shows the Sox's estimated payroll for 2014 based on all guaranteed salaries, expected arb cases, and adding enough league minimum salaries to reach a 25-man roster at a tick under $70 million.

The Sox currently only have guaranteed deals for 2014 with Danks ($14.25 M), Dunn ($15 M), Ramirez ($9.5 M), Sale ($3.5 M), and Keppinger ($4 M).
